About FinOps Accelerate

FinOps is a cultural practice of managing cloud costs cross-functionally, to optimize Cloud spends in the most effective manner.

Over 51% of users on Cloud end up overspending. FinOps allows users to monitor and tweak their Cloud spends, resource allocations, and more to reduce this misspend.

With FinOps Accelerate, a virtual conference by CloudKeeper, we aimed to take the lead in educating organizations on their Cloud spend and enabling them to take sharp decisions in deploying their Cloud infrastructure wisely.
